There are many clubs and organizations within the Kennedy Catholic community. Each club serves a different purpose and is able to reach out to many different types of people. Community service based clubs are very successful in bettering the community. One influential community service based club that seems to be making a lot of progress is the club called Play Ball.
It was mainly created and thought of by one of the seniors, Alex Morgante. Once I interviewed him and asked him a couple questions, I was able to learn a lot about the meaning of his club and what he hopes to achieve.
The club focuses on collecting slightly used sports equipment and donating them to a camp for unprivileged kids in Connecticut. He was inspired to do this because throughout his childhood, he had always played sports and as he began to stop and slow down, he wanted to give other kids that did not have the same opportunities, a chance to play. Personally, for Alex, sports still play a big role in his life. He finds enjoyment and relaxation in watching college and professional sports. He hopes that this club would continue and eventually expand to more people.
A lot of work has gone into creating the Play Ball club and it shows. It has a great goal and powerful message.
